of his imagination happy anniversary--dick. president obama landed in israel to kick off a largely symbolic two-day trip to the region. after being greeted by israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu and shimon perez at the airport, he held a private meeting with the recently re-elected netanyahu. the two then held a joint press conference where the three major topics werecy conflict in syria iran's pursuit of nuclear weapon and restarting the floundering israeli-palestinian peace process. today both obama and netanyahu expressed agreement with the about the need of new efforts on the two-state solution. >> so let me be clear. israel remains fully committed to peace and to the solution of two states for two people. >> an central element of lasting peace must be a strong and secure jewish state where israel's security concerns are met, along side a sovereign and independent palestinian state. >> john: which a now has been america's stated view for almost 20 years. joining us now to discuss day one of beam's israeli trip is comedian writer maysoon zayid and chief in the forward jane
every day. look, i think that both president obama and prime minister netanyahu has a symbolism to show he that the relationship is good. netanyahu formed a new government and obama wants the political benefit from israel's many supporters in the united states who he's retorically in support of israel's security needs, but the private meetings here where the real substance will be talked about are going to be radically different. obama has very difficult messages for netanyahu, don't go after the iranian nuclear weapons program. make more concessions to the palestinians. and if they got out and were the subject of public conversation with take president obama's 10% approval rating in israel and drive it even lower. >> greta: i notice that you wrote an op-ed in the jerusalem post today and you said that president obama, that in all the presidents since 1948 that you called him the most hostile to israel? >> yeah, i think that's clear from his record. look, he's not going to say it, he's going to say i've got israel's back. we support you. we want-- we don't want iran to get nuclear weapo
to perceive a credible threat if that is military. with president obama and netanyahu standing together on the question of iran in a way they have not done before, iran if they are watching and calculation is smart. >> everybody talks about the jewish vote and how it will go republican and maybe it does with reagan and mcgovern against nixon, is this really a problem for obama at all that he has a problem with the jewish community electorally? >> even mcgovern won two-thirds of the jewish vote in defeat. the jewish vote has been among the most stable in american politics, between two-thirds and three-quarters for democrats since fdr and al smith in 1958 because americans vote to the left on domestic issues, they don't primarily vote on israel and why these things don't change very much. i don't think it has to do with the jewish vote at all, with obama's views about american national issues. >> what about the man in jail for 28 years, the longest in any country. not spying on us but arabs. it seems if the makes this statementapology, belief he shouldn't have done it, what do you think?
the symbolism. obama will tell netanyahu unpleasant things, but you won't hear a word of it. it will be pictures of them joking around and yucking it up. it will be in their political advantage to do it. >> speaking of something you said. isn't it like mom and dad putting on a good show for the kids, but secretly they are going to get divorced? >> i don't think it was a compliment to begin with. if you threw a party and invited everyone you knew, you would see the biggest gift is from me. and they would say, thank you for being a friend. subtext, bring me a present, obama. in conclusion evie is greedy and blamp -- and blanch was a whore. >> you are saying that because you dated bea arthur in the 80s and there was a lot of strive. >> let it be. >> let it be indeed. she was quite the tumbler. she was into gym that is sticks. gymnastics. i loved bea arthur. but i wasn't crazy for maud. >>> okay. bill will discuss his book, i do the news and do it nude. first, what is a don't feed me t-shirt? something bill would wear, and then he would die. save up to 40% on closeout sets from beautyrest and postur
minister. >> obama: "it was good. it >> netanyahu: "get to rest for these next two days." >> obama: ".get away from congress." >> reporter: the president's first official word on israeli >> shalom peace as defined by israel means a willingness to go to war to keep iran from developing nuclear weapons. >> "in order to stop iran's program peacefully diplomacy must be augment by clear threat of military action." the president signaled that his administration would not object if israel acted on its own. >> "each country has to make its own decisions when it comes to the awesome decision to engage in any kind of military action. and situated than the united states." as for whether syria is using chemical weapons on rebels, he said the u=s is investigating. >> "once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game -changer." >> reporter: time and again, president obama went out of his way to express support for prime minister benjamin netanyahu >> "this is our tenth meeting, we've spent more time together, working together than i have with any leader." (prote
. >> netanyahu agrees with president obama on syria. conservatives tried to use our relationship with israel to grab votes. they accused president obama of not getting it, of being dangerous. some called him the most anti-israel president in american history. >> i want to thank you for the investment you have made in our relationship and in strengthening the friendship and alliance between our two countries. i am absolutely convinced that the president is determined to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. the president has reaffirmed more than any other president that israel has a duty to defend itself. it is a profound honor to host you, the leader of the free world and this historic time in our capital. mr. president, welcome to israel. >> let me start with you. we see these conciliatory gestures being offered by prime minister netanyahu, but that is different than the lecture that he gave to obama in his own digs in the white house. what accounts for the shift here? is it that he is on his own terrain, or is this a genuine change of attitude on netanyahu's part? >> the two sides hav
far, obama and israeli president benjamin netanyahu have been doing their best to put personal disagreements behind them. >> we look now at where israel and the u.s. stand today and with this visit could possibly take those ties. >> this is it is more of a symbolic gesture and less about the specifics of a peace plan. barack obama's aimed to build back a little warm in relations with israel. >> we've spent more time together, working together than i have with any leader, and this speaks to the closeness of our two nations. [applause] >> the alliance between the united states and israel is considered sacrosanct and has a long tradition. it dates back to 1967, during the six-day war. israeli forces took control of the west bank and the gaza strip. washington's pro-israeli policy was born with president lyndon b. johnson starting to send money and arms to the jewish state. 11 years later, the leaders of first world enemies israel and egypt signed the camp david accords after two weeks of intense negotiations led by president jimmy carter. the palestinians never give up their desir
with president benjamin netanyahu to visit mark president obama's first since taking the oval office in 2008. if you want to sound smart to y today, tell your friends that of the last 11 presidents, bill clinton and bush visited israel more than once while in office. clinton made the trip four times and bush traveled to israel twice. >>> enough with the real news. let's gather around the water cooler for the early outtakes from president obama's middle east trip. hours before he arrived in israel, his massive nine ton armored limo broke down. the beast as the car is known, had to be towed to a garage after mechanical failure. not sure how you replace a vehicle with eight inch thick steel doors but the secret service did. they bring multiple vehicles and even the mechanic on the trips just in case. and quite a way to say thank you, president obama brought a magnolia church to shimon perez. but as soon as president obama left, the israelis dug it up. the tree was sent off for pesticide testing. foreign plants have to undergo a series of checks. according to reports, the tests could take month
beyond 2017 but netanyahu specified for a 10 year time frame. president obama hadn't put any time frame on it, bill. >> bill: president obama said in the press conference that he believes negotiations can stop iran from the nukes. i don't think netanyahu believes that at all. >> he doesn't. and he made clear he he said, in essence, i'm paraphrasing that the state of israel has the right to defend itself and we would never defer in the exercise of that right, even to our greatest friend, which is the united states. in other words, -- >> bill: on that issue and that's the key issue in the region right now. now, cammeron has been looking at marco rubio and rand paul. and you consider these two guys rivals for the republican nomination in 2016. now they have staked out different territory on immigration. tell me where each guy stands on the proposed new immigration bill. it's been amazing to watch them both dance through immigration reform. the cpac conference that happened this last weekend. positioning for 2012 they are both acknowledge they are looking at it it rand paul. >> bill: 2016 y
here. >> hi, njohn. >> so much scratchiness between obama and netanyahu the last four years. an event in the u.s. campaign where netanyahu more or less endorsed mitt romney for president. how much of the loathe that is coming from b.b. towards our president is kind of him trying to make sure that he has not done long-term damage to the relationship in that direction? we know what barack obama's objectives here are but it it seems to me netanyahu is making up for any hurt feelings he did over last summer. >> absolutely. there is a political balance here. if you can see the see-saw right now. netanyahu is weaker than re-elected barack obama. they need each other. but israel needs the u.s. to have its back, both because of syria, the civil war next door, the possibility of chemical weapons which would be, as the president said, a real game-changer, though, i'm told that they have no evidence that chemical weapons were used by the regime. the president is very clear that it would not have been used by the opposition. that was fallacious argument from the regime but no hard evidence they w
points were in the news conference that the two leaders had, president obama and prime minister netanyahu where the president said there is is not a lot of daylight between the u.s. and israel on the question of iran and its nuclear program. but then the news conference went on to demonstrate exactly where that daylight is prime minister netanyahu said that we think, israel thinks there is a certain point iran with get with nuclear program they won't have built the nuclear bomb so close immunity from any kind of military strike. netanyahu said twice this is our view, this is oour view. and by way of suggesting it is not the u.s. president's view. one further point, bill, if i may. president obama said as a sort of a big announcement in his opening remarks that the united states remains committed to helping israel maintain what's called the qme. qualitative military edge. what that means no matter what arms we sell to the region, we will always help israel maintain qualitative edge over its neighbors. we are committed to sex extending that beyond 2017 for some period of time. we will talk
: and in that and the other remarks, you heard what? >> what i heard was that clearly president obama and prime minister netanyahu have reached an agreement, however grudging it may be, it seems solid that the united states will not block an israeli strike on iran. and it led, for me led to the question of have we given them the latest bunker buster technology they would need to severely degrade or damage the nuclear program. and it wasn't just that one remark. from the president of the united states and from the prime minister of israel heard repeated remarks about israel's right to defend itself. israel's right to act alone. the united states would not stand in their way, but of course, reinforcing the idea that the united states would act militarily if necessary, but the interesting point how, i think president obama made it, how perceptions can be different, israel can perceive a threaten more quickly, as an ext threat than we do and that the government netanyahu. >> this is what krauthammer was saying on special report. and sound bites. i think that bb kept repeating that to say that the president
smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a couple of key questions. does the president of the united states lay out any timetable for his effort to resume peace process? i expect the answer to that is no. he will say there's more foundation building. what does president abbas say about his willingness to come back to the table? right now he says he will only come back if israel meets certain conditions, chief among them, stop iping settlement construction in the west bank. construction is under way. and that construction has accelerated because president netanyahu was made at the united nations for recognizing, essentially, a palestinian state. that is a poke in the eye of the palestinians. it's also a poke in the eye, by the way, at the president of the united states, who has urged president netanyahu not to do that. it was very interesting yesterday. the pre
and israel go way beyond president obama and prime minister netanyahu. started long before and will continue long after. but the president has been very warm towards the israeli people and we certainly appreciate it. >> now the president of the united states and the prime minister did not really come off fully on the same page on iran. just one way of putting this when the prime minister approached the podium, he talked about iran first. president obama mentioned it last. in fact, prefacing it with the word finally. and here's what they said. >> we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. and there's still time to do so. >> diplomacy and sanctions so far have not stopped iran's nuclear program. >> do you think the u.s. really has, i'll quote president obama, all options on the table when it comes to iran when you hear words like you heard today? >> well, erin, i think we have to look at the facts. and the facts are that words in washington or in jerusalem don't stop centrifuges and events. as all this has gone on, the iranians actually tripled the pace that they're accelerated the pace of uran
that they are staunchal lies, maybe even friends. obama joking about meeting netanyahu's sons. >> they are very good-looking young men who clearly got their looks from their mother. >> well, i can say the same of your daughters. >> reporter: after meeting with obama for more than two hours netanyahu affirmed his trust of the president when it comes to iran. >> i'm absolutely convinced that the president is determined to prevent iran from getting nuclear weapons. >> reporter: later today the president returns to jerusalem where he hopes to bring a little campaign magic to the trip with a speech to some 600 israeli college students. the white house sees this as an opportunity to speak directly to the israeli people. urging them to make a new effort to make peace with the palestinians. >> something they very much want to do. >> indeed, robin, we turn to the latest on that massive manhunt under way in colorado. the head of the state's prison systems gunned down on his front doorstep in front of his wife. abc's clayton sandell is in monument, colorado, with the very latest this morning. good morning to y
, however. president obama meeting today with israeli prime minister netanyahu repeating his warning that syria would be held accountable for the use of chemical weapons, quote, or their transfer to terrorists. now, the stakes obviously cannot be higher for making the right call. joining us tonight is chief national correspondent john king who is traveling with president obama in israel. also fran townsend, former homeland security adviser in the bush 43 administration, she's currently on the cia's external advisory committee and former cia officer bob baer. this video we just showed from the assad regime, shown on syrian state television. want to show it again. it's supposedly a victim suffering from a chemical weapons attack. no one shows any physical signs of injury, no convulsions, no vomiting. at least three experts on chemical weapons quote in reports today say that judging from what they see here, it doesn't seem like a chemical weapons attack. knowing what you know about these type of agents and their effect on humans, do you agree? >> you know, it's difficult to tell without
